She has a passion for skin aesthetics and her knowledge in the subject is outstanding! I highly recommend her course for those looking for a well-rounded, structured program with one of the best instructors in the field.” Dr. Jyoti Patel “Being an advanced educator for PCA SKIN and a Master Esthetician, continuing education is essential for professional growth. Esthetic Advisor Laser Academy truly believes in the quality of the education they provide. The teaching staff makes the science behind the technology easy to comprehend. This is truly important because you want to be able to trust a technician’s knowledge and skill level. With the knowledge that I gained from Dr. and Mrs. Groop along with their staff, I feel confident in both the science and technologies that I learned. While attending the academy I was able to do a variety of treatments on various patients and skin types. This hands on experience is key to being successful in any practice even as a seasoned professional. I would highly recommend this training for any clinical professional just starting out or even for someone looking to advance their practical skills and education.

beautiful medical nurse closeup portrait24 Hour Medical Director Course (live)Arizona requires that a medical director supervise the operation of any Class II and above cosmetic laser. In order to be licensed by ARRA as a medical director in AZ, doctors/nurse practitioners must complete a 24 hour medical director course from an ARRA approved training facility. EALA offers an ARRA approved medical director course at our ultra-comfortable Scottsdale training theater.

AZ Attendees are required by ARRA to take a 50 question test and pass with an 80% or better score.

From a liability standpoint, if a doctor or NP is going to be lending his/her name and license to a facility as a medical director, he/she can reduce liability by learning the physics of lasers and how to operate them safely in order to effectively supervise laser operators. As an expert witness, Kristin Groop has seen this lack of training come up in laser lawsuits where it was used against the supervising doctor/NP.

This course will also include the 8 hour Laser Safety Officer (LSO) certification, which is needed in Arizona, Florida, Texas and Ohio and other states for cosmetic laser facilities.

The 24 Hour Medical Director course is also available in an online format for those practitioners not working in the state of Arizona.
